Grease is the Word!

That's right, today Grease is the word! Purple Moon has released three dresses inspired by the movie Grease and I picked up the Sandy dress in pearl. Personally I think it's refreshing to add something vintage and movie authentic to my wardrobe and not prance around with all my pixels exposed. The lace work is beautiful and I really feel like I belong at a prom in the 1950s. I love this dress so much I also have it in a light blue.


And what better way to show off this beautiful dress than with some poses from Adorkable. These are from the Prance set which are not new but still awesome! Now I'm off to find a date to take to this prom!

Dreaming With a Broken Heart

When you're dreaming with a broken heart
The waking up is the hardest part
You roll out of bed and down on your knees
And for the moment you can hardly breathe
Wondering was she really here?
Is she standing in my room?
No she's not, 'cause she's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone....


 Okay enough with the song lyrics already! But seriously the moment I put this outfit together and took these two shots, this song immediately came into my head. Although really, I'm dancing with a broken heart, right? Wait, wait, my heart honestly, its not broken. Anyways what would make me wear something so outside what you normally see me in? Why Virtual Burlesque did! These past few Fridays I have been going to the show at Beautiful Freaks where they encourage you to dress up crazy for the show and after party. If you've never been to a Virtual Burlesque show or never heard of it, go please! Its probably one of the most amazing things I've seen in SL. The dancers must come up with choreography to a song and build their own sets. It's truly a site to see. I have been blown away each time. Want to know more? Visit their site here

Well now its time for the show, what do you wear? The current store I've become obsessed with for these shows is called Boudoir. The designer has everything you could imagine costume wise, and all very original, detailed and just plain beautiful. The outfit I'm wearing is called Black Swan and the detail on the bodice is gorgeous. I really felt like a ballerina in this outfit.

Winter Princess

Okay lets face it, I have been a very naughty blogger lately. No posts in almost 2 weeks! Well when you work like I do, its hard to find the time but I promise myself to be better. Now, lets get down to business. Fantasy Faire is going on right now in SL and if you haven't been GO ALREADY! When you teleport to Fantasy Faire Junction you have the option to visit 8 sims, each built around its own theme. This fair benefits Relay For Life, a cause that is near and dear to my heart as I know so many people who are battling cancer. Each vendor even has a specific product out and all proceeds from that product go directly to RFL. There are also kiosks all over each sim where you can directly donate to RFL. So you don't role play, dress up crazy or feel the need to buy an outrageous outfit you may only wear once? Well you should visit just to see the builds! They are amazing, each with its own theme. Please go, you don't have to buy anything, but don't stand on your platform complaining that there is nothing for you to do in SL. And onto what I purchased.

I stumbled across a store called Panda Express and found this outfit called Winter Princess. Its revealing, sexy and channels the inner ice goddess in me so yes, I had to have it! Plus, its color changeable. Of course, when I went to try and photograph it, any viewer I tried using was giving me fits. But on the upside I can use shadows now! *Squeals with delight* I couldn't figure out before why whenever I had shadows enabled everything was insanely blurry and it looked like there was a problem with my computer screen itself, but I persevered and fixed the problem. Okay, enough talking, show the picture already!!!!

52 Weeks of Color: Royal Purple and Seashell Peach

Of course I am a bit behind with Luna Jubilee's color challenge again. I guess I've been posting two colors every other week. I wasn't sure what to do about last weeks color, royal purple. I am not a purple fan at all and didn't want to go out and buy a color I didn't particularly like. It's a good thing I remembered that I received this top from Apple May as a group gift for the outfit Ringer. I have land again so I've been a busy bee decorating and setting things up. Yay for my new home!


I honestly thought I had the perfect outfit for seashell peach in my inventory but it turned out to be too orange. So it gave me an excuse to shop for a color I did like! I've been meaning to pick up something from League. Most of their clothes have a bohemian chic feel to them and I found this cute little top. I paired it with a skirt from Mon Tissu and I had my outfit!

Wait! Easter is over?

Okay so naturally I am a day late with this post, but its the thought that counts right? I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter or Passover or just a lovely weekend. To celebrate Easter in SL I decided to pull out Sway's Easter Bench from my inventory and take a photo. Yummy bunny!


And of course Saturday night I was up late, unable to sleep yet again and I came across this cute bunny suit and had to snap a picture in front of my new house. *Hops up and down in excitement!*

How do you get ready for a night out?

So you have an event or party to go to or maybe you are just hitting up one of your favorite clubs. How do you get ready. I'd take a bath or a shower first. Make sure those pixels are squeaky clean!
Then you have to pick out an outfit, do your hair and put on your make up. An if you're a girl this may take some time. You have to look perfect, right?
When you have finished and are ready to head out, do one last spot check to make sure everything is in place. Then maybe snap a photo in a sexy pose. This photo is actually a week old. I ended up at The Pixel Bean for an 80s themed night (in case you can't tell). If you haven't checked it out, please do! Great atmosphere and nice people. I love a good themed night.
